Orangutan, Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesia

Tanjung Puting National Park

Located on the southern edge of Indonesian Borneo, Tanjung Puting National Park is a vast area of jungle that incorporates dry forests, swamps and coastal mangroves. Famous for its orangutan population and associated conservation efforts, the park rose to prominence thanks to the stellar work of Dr Galdikas, one of Louis Leakey's remarkable 'Trimates'. Despite the park's protected status and the work of numerous NGOs, this fragile ecosystem remains under threat from the loss of natural habitats. Packed with wildlife, the park's most renowned spectacles are its magnificent orangutans, which number almost 6000, and its peculiar proboscis monkeys, which are increasingly rare.
